Samsung's new tablet picks up Galaxy Note, iPad Pro, and PC features

Samsung's new tablet picks up Galaxy Note, iPad Pro, and PC features

Samsung is back again with a new Galaxy Tab.

Sadly, the Tab S6 does not come with a headphone jack.

Samsung has launched the Galaxy Tab S6. We'll have to wait for Samsung's official announcement for that.

The Tab S6 has also been kitted out with new, more powerful 7nm processors including a CPU the Korean tech giant claims is 81 per cent faster than on the Tab S4.

Although the Tab S5e is affordable, the Tab S6 is a more premium product.

You can have the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 in 6GB RAM + 128GB storage configuration, which costs $649, or you can have it in 8GB RAM + 256GB storage configuration, which costs $729.

Samsung's U.S. chip supply shake up is yet to be made official, hence why the reason for this change is now unknown. And the new version of the $180 Book Cover Keyboard case, which lets you use the tablet in laptop-like orientation, now includes a trackpad, permitting you to mouse around DeX without using a mouse.

While most leaks provide us with a closer look at one unreleased smartphone, this one right here does even more than that: it shows two different models that would go live in the coming months.

Samsung has heard complaints about the spec sheet on its previous high-end tablets, and the Tab S6 makes some changes. There are a few tweaks here and there, but this isn't a radical redesign. Both of them will be available in three color options - Mountain Gray, Cloud Blue, and Rose Blush. It now comes with BLE functionality such as gesture control and charges wirelessly by magnetically attaching to the side of the tablet.

Talking about the S Pen, it attaches to the back of the Tab S6 which is probably going to be really clumsy. This allows you to do things use the S-Pen as a remote shutter or skip songs. For the first time, Samsung has equipped its tablet with a dual-camera setup at the rear.

The rear-facing camera array consists of a 13-megapixel shooter and a 5-megapixel camera while a single 8-megapixel camera handles video calling duties up front.
